Security Trends in Federal and State Identity and Security Programs

Securing Federal Identity 2020 – This highly focused, high-energy event will feature federal government identity and security policy issues and technology developments for today’s federal agencies and federal market security leaders. The select group of government and industry speakers on the agenda and large number of security companies in our exhibit area will highlight the present and future direction of the government’s efforts to manage identities and secure access across all federal agencies. Don’t miss this year’s event, the best venue to learn, communicate and network with fellow government security industry colleagues!

You are invited to join government leaders, security executives and digital identity and authentication experts for a one-and-a-half-day showcase featuring comprehensive coverage of efforts toward strong authentication technology using secure identity credentials and mobile devices in federal and state government  programs. Building off of 18 years of successful Secure Technology Alliance government conferences, Securing Federal Identity 2020 has become the premier government security conference, bringing together the most important developments, innovations and experts in federal identity credentialing and access security.


Bonus Add-On Mobile Driver’s License  Industry Leadership Forum – This additional post-conference event will provide a forum for industry stakeholders to learn about the technology and security of mobile driver’s licenses (mDLs) and IDs and explore how they can be used in various mobile identification and age verification use cases.  Participants and attendees will include state issuers of mobile identities in the form of digital drivers licenses, standards groups, technology providers, and potential users of mDLs.

Mobile devices offer a rich and secure platform for storing digital driver’s licenses and using them for identification and authentication purposes. Implementation approaches vary across industry sectors on how mobile identity credentials are provisioned and used and what technologies are used to securely provision and authenticate the digital data associated with the credential. The Industry Leadership Forum will address the challenges and opportunities ahead for mDLs to be issued and used securely, with privacy in mind, and discuss how standards-based mDLs can be interoperable regardless of what state is the issuer or where the mDL is presented.

The Mobile Driver’s License Industry Leadership Forum promises to be interactive and educational, inviting participation from select industry experts, state issuing authorities, and relying parties such as representatives from retail, air travel, banking, healthcare, law enforcement, and government services. Representatives from the Secure Technology Alliance Identity Council’s Mobile Driver’s License Project Team will be coordinating this Forum.

2020 Agenda

Securing Federal Identity – The agenda will include senior federal government security policy and programs leaders and technology experts in keynote sessions, roundtables and panels.  The conference will examine the current state of digital identity in the federal government, the risks to critical infrastructure and security challenges. Government agencies like NIST, GSA, DHS, and DOD are attempting to solve these security issues, and their representatives will highlight some of the examples of digital identity in use today. The two-day agenda will look at the federal policies and security programs that are working to secure federal facilities and services and discuss the role mobile identity has in authentication and authorization activities. If you’re involved in federal identity credentialing or access security, you won’t want to miss this conference, as it will bring together the most important developments, innovations and experts in the space

This year’s Securing Federal Identity event will be held at the Hilton Crystal City at National Airport. The exhibitor floor plan for this event occupies two areas – one area is inside the conference room itself with additional table spaces outside the conference room.

The layout for the event is unique in that some exhibit tables are located inside session rooms and placed around the outer edges. Others are placed where breaks and meals are served.  This layout offers some exhibit tables in the “quiet zone” during presentations to minimize potential distractions.  Plenty of time will be allotted to enable attendees to visit the exhibitor tables during breaks, at meal times, and at the end-of-day reception on Monday, June 22nd.
